Powercolor X1900XT 512mb


Powercolor are one of ATI’s major AIB partners. They have a reputation for producing no-nonsense quality bundles without a lot of the extra games that a lot of firms send with the graphics cards nowadays. This means that their cards are slightly cheaper and in my opinion: better value.

Today I will take a look at the Powercolor X1900XT. I have already reviewed the Sapphire X1900XTX here, along with an nvidia card roundup here. I will take a look at the Powercolor card and see how it compares to those top-end products.


Powercolor have presented the card in attractive packaging that shows you part of the card on the front.

This gives you a clear idea of what you are getting. They have also added specs and information on the back of the card:

The actual packaging of the card was fairly minimal but it certainly does its job at protecting the card in transit:

The card arrived in great shape and I have no doubt that the packaging did its job.

Now onto the card itself..
